I take it all back - this CD sucks, except for New Speedway Boogie and No Matter What, it's elevator music. If you get a chance to hear those two, though, they are pretty darned good.

You picked it up and saw that he covered that horrible Bread tune Make It With You and you expected more than elevator music? Perhaps we should not go for the extra shot of espresso in that latte......

Yeah, you got me there! I didn't spot the David Gates cover until after purchasing. Or the John Lennon, which I must say is simply an atrocity, ditto Into The Mystic.

I obviously should have drunk the coffee FIRST. I will maintain, though, that New Speedway is kind of interesting, they re-cast it with a Daniel Lanois-ish spooky feel and it's got some really nice drumming in it. Still, probably not even that is worth hearing more than once or twice ... the rest, as you already surmised, is pure shite.
